Spinal focuses on the First World War experiences of soldiers from the Indian Subcontinent and includes transcripts of letters and diaries, medical records and official dispatches, extracts from novels and poetry, accounts of dreams and nightmares, fragments of archival film & photography and spectral snatches of voices captured in 100-year-old sound recordings, The show follows on from Raqs' immersive installation Not Yet At Ease, co-commissioned by Firstsite and 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary.
